Width: 9"   Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics.

Artist's Statement: My Mom had dementia and when it first began, she would ask what was happening to her. As time went on, she spoke of confusion and losing her memory (thus, small memories). Dementia/Alzheimer's is a devastating disease. For the last several months of her life, Mom couldn't speak and lost all facial expression. We had to guess at what she needed or wanted. It broke our hearts, as can be seen by this quilt.
